Sony A200

We’re pleased to present a short video tour of the Sony 75-300mm zoom using a Sony Alpha A100 body, demonstrating its build quality, coverage and features. There’s no need to download any new software – just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

Good points
4x telephoto zoom, complements kit lens.
Budget price especially in twin lens kit.
Anti-shake thanks to A100 body.
Lens hood included.

Bad points
Soft in extreme corners when zoomed-out.
Slow and noisy focusing.
End section rotates while focusing.
Anti-shake less effective at 300mm in our tests.
